Bought a cheap AVR-ISP programmer on Ebay, and you find out that while it does provide 3.3V, it is VCC-only & your device is NOT 5V tolerant on its I/O pins. BUMMER! This little board fixes just that issue. All … Continue reading
There are DFN10 / QFN10 test-sockets, but these things cost close to 100 bucks, which I’m not (yet?) willing to spend on this. If this should work, I would be able to add preprogrammed chips to some SMD DIY kits … Continue reading
The lack of an ISP connector on this board has given me a lot of grief. This little adapter board will solve that problem once and for all. It also provides a couple of through-hole pads for potentially adding some … Continue reading
The key to successful AVR programming :-> The previous version of this adapter had a major disadvantage – assembly was a mess. You needed a jig, sticky tape… not good.
As of late I’ve been making smaller and smaller circuit boards, fighting for every mm² of space. The typical 6pin ISP connector used for programming a lot of the AVR micro-controllers has been getting in the way more and more.
The Half-Ohm is a very nice and small adapter that plugs right into your DMM. The Half-Ohm is made by Jaanus Kalde and you can get it here. It does NOT come with a battery, so make sure you have … Continue reading
I’ve waited almost 8 weeks… and finally the reward ;-) And I’ve already managed to solder the LT1618 boost converter chip to one of these. Compared to soldering TQFP-32 packages this screams for solder paste and a hot air station. … Continue reading
Hi, I’ve been planning to build a prototype driver for the Seeedstudio LED module (1, 2) for quite a while, but I just cannot get MSOP-DIP adapters that are reasonably priced. The cheapest single one I could find was 2.50€! … Continue reading
